I’ve been busy. How about you? My youngest just turned 6 months and occupies most of my time and all of my heart. And so dear readers, I haven’t had much time to browse the blogoshpere or to write, but I did find this piece by The Thinking Housewife: On Marital Companionship and wanted to share it here. Enjoy!

I’m reading “the Birth order book” a section is dedicated to Marriage which I found intriguing. According to it the happiest couple combination is oldest daughter to youngest son (who is not an only son). The most conflictive matches are oldest daughter to oldest son or only daughter to only son.
I’m the oldest daughter in my family and my husband is the oldest son in his, this book was dead on when it came to our strengths and weaknesses. It was uncanny.
So now I’m curious, which birth order are you? Did you marry the same? the opposite?
Apparently Mutual attraction wins and chastity loses, good health also takes a hit.
My husband graduated from night school this May, our girls finished another school year, we went to my brother’s wedding, our daughter celebrated her first communion that same weekend, my sister’s wedding is in August, my husband got a great job offer in the South and he’s thinking about taking it, and our ninth wedding Anniversary is tomorrow. The years have been good and they’ve been full, here’s to many more!
I haven’t listened to this video in it’s entirety but all of Fr. Ripperger’s talks I have heard have been very good.
P.S. Please remember to pray for Fr. Ripperger.
Interesting poll I found on twitter:
Some common sense on these matters (brought to my attention by Fr.Z):
In the mornings you smoothed the sheets.
If I was up early,
I’d watch your ringed hand glide
across the textured quilt.
Once I asked why
you were left to the remaking.
He has other work.
And I young (untried)
and privy to such encounters still,
felt stupid to have asked.
